Craftsman 420cc 42 Step Through Frame Riding Mower
If you are looking at the best bang for the buck mower that will be perfect for a suburban yard up to 3/4 acre, the Craftsman 420cc 42 Step Through Frame Riding Mower is a terrific choice. From Sears, their own branded 420 CC engine puts out about 13 horsepower and drives a two blade 48-inch mower deck. The price is less than half as much as even the lowest price mower listed here, but for a smaller yard, does anyone really need a lawn tractor better than this? Kudos have to given to Sears, because although most everything is done manually, from shifting to deck lowering, it cuts as well as any other two blade tractor, and it even features a fully pressurized engine with a spin-on oil filter, just like the top dogs on this list. That means the engine will last longer when mowing ditches, hills and rougher terrain. This is a great mower at a great price!
